FC Seoul vs Gwangju FC Prediction
After two consecutive wins in the AFC Champions League, FC Seoul has lost to Gangwon on the road with a 3-1 scoreline in their opening match in the K League 1 this season.
Gwangju is on a three-game losing streak in their overall schedule, following a 0-2 loss at home in the opening match of the K League 1 against Seongnam.
The visitor is returning to the top tier after their 2017 season relegation. However, being a promoted team will hold back the traveling side in the clash at Seoul.
Besides, playing away from home is not the strongest suit for Gwangju. They have won only four of their recent ten trips on the road in all major competitions.
Towards the end of the last season, Seoul also had trouble in their home matches. However, they have rectified it in the recent AFC home games. So, the odds will be against the promoted side.
The home win in full time at 1.75 odds will be the best bet for the punters considering their h2h history, especially at this venue.
Also, since they are well accustomed to each other in earlier seasons, we can expect a BTTS in the match, and with 1.80 odds; it will be a good probability in ninety minutes.
